This is my second year teaching. During my first year, I worked at a different school w/a more supportive administration and team and was really sad on the last day of school to see my kids go. When the final bell rang, we all did a huge group hug and I was tempted to give them my email address because I already missed them that much. This is embarassing, but as the dismissal approached, I started wishing for more time with them. At my new school, I felt none of that. On the last day (toay) I was watching the clock, counting down the minutes. The second they called for the kids, I'm ushering them out the door and down the hall. It felt like any other day, not the first day of school. I felt no bond with them. Does this come from having such a rough group this year, or from having more experience teaching?
